Zakynthos: How the famous businessman was executed

Zakynthos is shocked by the death ambush set on the well-known businessman of the island, Dionysis Korfiatis, who was known as Dimis. The unfortunate man was shot while he was inside the computer and European programs office of the brothers Fotis and Nikos Kottis at the junction of Filikon and Kolyva streets. Last year, his 37-year-old wife was killed when unknown assailants ambushed and shot them.

This is the point of killing a businessman

Unknown, he got out of a car and started shooting outside the window, injuring him fatally. Early reports say the perpetrators killed him with a Kalashnikov. They then fled. Police forces and an ambulance rushed to the spot, while the area has been cordoned off. One of the owners of the office was reportedly slightly injured and was taken to hospital for first aid.

What had happened in 2020

In early June, two perpetrators ambushed the couple in the area of ​​Agios Sostis and cold-bloodedly shot the 37-year-old while she was on the motorcycle driven by her husband. The killers were driving a white machine, while 45-gauge pistol shells were found at the scene. The unfortunate woman lost her life instantly from the attack, while her husband was injured and taken to hospital. The killers had been spying on the area the previous days, in order to prepare and set the death knell for the businessman and his wife. After all, the police consider that the murder of the 53-year-old’s partner is not a “collateral loss”, as the perpetrators wanted both of them dead. A few days later, a 10-meter inflatable boat was found in the area of ​​Porto Roma in Vasiliko, which according to information seems to have been used by the perpetrators to leave the island.

The mother of the unfortunate Christina, had stated to Realnews “I mourn my child. I mourn the loss of my daughter. The pain we are experiencing is enormous. He was a good boy, an angel. ” The mother of the unfortunate woman bursts out when she talks about the unjust loss of her daughter, while she can not hold back her tears when she refers to her three beloved grandchildren, who were left orphaned. The only consolation for Mrs. Katie was that her daughter’s husband had escaped to raise her grandchildren. A year later, however, the 54-year-old failed to escape the second ambush.

“Fortunately, my son-in-law is fine. He escaped. He is a good man. He is alive to take care of the children. At least my grandchildren will grow up with him. The children learned about their mother. “They keep asking to see their mom,” said Katie in June 2020.

Mafia execution in Zakynthos: The tall, the short and the death contract

In particular, the victim allegedly reported incidents of police corruption. A written complaint that he co-signed in the summer of 2017 states: “EL.AS officers are patrons in clubs on the island where the biggest drug trafficking takes place and receive a share from drug traffickers. In the same company of the main members of the organized crime, in Zakynthos, a person who has been accused of a bloody attack against two British tourists in Laganas has joined “. The 54-year-old, who had a hotel in the area and a tourist boat in the area of ​​Laganas, was recently sentenced to four years in prison because weapons and other items related to the activities of Albanian criminals accused of robbery were found in his accommodation. EL.AS officials estimate that the 53-year-old may have been involved in complaints that had reached EL.AS leaders, which linked a robbery that took place in Zakynthos on April 19, 2016 with the abduction of 580,000 euros by a businessman of the island, with high-ranking EL.AS executive on the island.
